Minnesota RollerGirls Skater to Compete in 2014 Roller Derby World Cup
Minnesota RollerGirls skater Dana Noss has made the final cut to compete as a member of Team USA in the 2014 Blood and Thunder Roller Derby World Cup. Noss was chosen to represent the USA as part of the 20-woman Team USA charter, selected from a wider training group of 32 of the top American female roller derby players. Noss joins Team USA in Dallas, Texas, this December, where teams from at least a dozen countries around the world will compete for the World Cup.
Noss currently skates for the Minnesota RollerGirls as a member of their internationally competitive All-Star team, ranked 8th overall in the Women's Flat Track Derby Association (WFTDA). She is also a co-captain on her Minnesota RollerGirls home team the Garda Belts, who compete as one of four teams in the Saint Paul based Minnesota RollerGirls league.
Noss will be skating in the Minnesota RollerGirls second home bout of the season on Saturday, Nov. 15 at 7:30 p.m. in The Legendary Roy Wilkins Auditorium. Visit mnrollergirls.com for more information about tickets and the event.
